Lillian worked as a homemaker for most of her life. She enjoyed gardening, canning her garden produce, auctions & estate sales. Although she was a member of St. Anne Church, she enjoyed what her children affectionately referred to her as a "church hopper". She would attend as many Masses on Sunday throughout Peoria until there were no more Masses available for her to attend. Attending Mass was one of the most cherished things she did. A funeral Mass for Lillian will be at 11 am, Tuesday, November 30 at St. Ann Catholic Church, 1009 S.Louisa St. Peoria, IL 61605. Father Jeremy Freehill will officiate. Visitation will be at the church from 10:00 am until the time of funeral mass. Burial will follow at the Lutheran Cemetery. The family will be forever indebted to Larry & Karen and their daughter, Jennifer, for all the care and sacrifices made in caring for our mother and to their son, Larry, and his wife, Tina, for making a special celebration of Mom's 95th birthday. Memorials for Lillian can be made to Father Ted's Kids Mission in Kenya and sent to Casey Ladowski, 1200 Gleneagles Ct., Lake Geneva, WI, 53147 or Donella Anderson, 15765 N 1150th Rd, Macomb, IL 61455.
